Asus Readies Top-of-the-Range ROG GTX 780 Ti Poseidon Adapter

Asus is going to enlarge its Republic of Gamers production line with a new graphics adapter – the ROG GTX 780 Ti Poseidon. The model, which is going to become a top-of-the-range product, is differentiated by an offbeat PCB and an exclusive hybrid Direct CU H20 cooler. For sure, this card is ready to offer much more opportunities for demanding gamers. No information about the release date of the pricing has been unveiled so far.

The implemented cooler combines the fundamentals as of air cooling, so of liquid one. Therein, the user is able to choose by himself/herself, which type of mechanism to employ, or whether there is a need to employ both. Irrespective of the choice, each and every component is going to be chilled to promote for the best operating efficiency, especially during overclocking.

The cooler itself consists of a waterblock, a bulky heatsink, three heat pipes, and a pair of low-noise fans with dust protection. The entire framework is covered by a …

PowerColor Outs an Overclocked Radeon R9 270 OC Graphics Card

Along with other AMD partners, PowerColor has elaborated its own version of Radeon R9 270 adapter. The PowerColor Radeon R9 270 OC is differentiated from rival products by an improved cooling system and factory overclocked frequencies. Its release is scheduled for late November and the retail price won’t hit over $180.

To begin with, this graphics card is naturally based on AMD Curacao Pro GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. It consists of 1280 current processors, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. The core runs at 930 MHz frequency and is able to gain 955 MHz frequency on overclocking. The incorporation of GDDR5 memory (2 GB) with 256-bit bus interface ensures some striking bandwidth of 180 Gb/sec; this provides for the support of gaming applications with high resolution. Memory chip operates at 1400 MHz nominal frequency but might gain the index of 5600 MHz of effective frequency on overclocking.

Cooling system, implemented within Radeon R9 270 OC, cannot be called …

Intel Broadwell CPUs will Get BGA Casing

The Internet community is energetically discussing unofficial info concerning the future Intel's Broadwell processors. According to the yet unacknowledged data, Intel will branch off from currently traditional LGA casings in favor to a more advanced BGA solution. At present all CPUs designed by Intel specifically for desktop platforms feature LGA (Land Grid Array) casings which allow the users to upgrade their systems without any hassle. On LGA implementation, the chip is housed within a socket and contacts with the motherboard. As a result, the user might change one chip to the other only with similar set of contacts.

The launch of Intel Broadwell processors, which is planned for 2014, might dramatically change the situation for customers. Most probably Intel will refuse from LGA casings and accommodate all new CPUs in BGA ones, marking the change of Haswell generation to the future Broadwell generation developed under 14 nm technological process. BGA (Ball Grid Array) …
